Registration now open: UK Garage and Bodyshop Event 2024

Visitor registration is now open for the UK Garage and Bodyshop Event, which is set to return for its second edition at the NEC in Birmingham on 5th and 6th June 2024.

This one-of-a-kind national event – with free parking and breakfast provided – promises to provide an unparalleled opportunity this year for garage and workshop professionals to access dynamic training, cutting-edge technologies and essential tools for their trade.

With the UK Aftermarket undergoing significant transformations, including the shift to EV and ADAS-enabled technologies, coupled with rapid advancements in service and repair technologies, the importance of attending such an event has never been more crucial for garage owners and technicians.

The event will bring together 180 leading suppliers, including ZF, Bosch, Hella, Alliance Automotive Group, Snap-On, Comma, LKQ Euro Car Parts, Niterra (formerly NGK), Castrol, GSF and much more, as well as over 5,000 garage professionals, providing a platform for interactive exhibitions, live demonstrations, workshops and panel discussions led by industry experts.

Visitors will be able to access practical skills training from 80+ experts. Renowned industry experts will lead technical seminars across four dedicated training hubs, covering topics such as engine fault diagnostics, MOT, diesel, ADAS, and more.

A key feature will include the Modern Garage, sponsored by LKQ Euro Car Parts, which will take place for business owners and managers looking to equip themselves with the tools, technology and expertise to service and repair modern vehicles effectively and profitably.

New for 2024, the the UK Garage & Bodyshop Event will also be launching its official student programme on 6th June 2024 for the first time at the show.

Delivered with partner, Autotech Group, the student programme aims to engage fresh talent and showcase the array of real-life, exciting and prosperous opportunities within the ever-evolving, and increasingly complex, sector.

The Workshop Training Hub will offer a packed programme of technical seminars addressing advancements and challenges facing the service, repair and maintenance sector, including new topics like EV service and repair and introducing ADAS to a garage’s business.

The Workshop Management Hub will present an essential programme for garage owners and managers looking to improve business operations, profitability and future-proofing strategies.

There will also be the opportunity to get involved in the Live Garage Workshop, where visitors can experience expert advice and demonstrations from industry leaders, with new product launches and a focus on modern vehicle servicing and repair.

Alex Jones, marketing director for the UK Garage and Bodyshop Event, said: “After a hugely successful inaugural show two years ago, we’re really looking forward to its second instalment – it’s a must-attend for garage professionals seeking to stay ahead in an ever-evolving industry.

“With access to cutting-edge technologies, expert training, and invaluable networking opportunities, attendees will gain the knowledge and tools needed to thrive in today’s automotive market.”
